Foster children in Troy won’t be required to present documents such as birth certificates before enrolling in the city school system thanks to the State’s Every Student Succeeds Act.
The law requires that foster care children looking to enroll in a new school have immediate stability while documents are being transferred.
The Troy Board of Education approved the provision at a board meeting Thursday night.
The board also approved a list of personnel changes, including: the retirement of Laurie Jordan, a first grade teacher at Troy Elementary School (TES); the resignation of Holly Barber, a special education aide at TES; the hire of Tonikia Perry to serve as a special education aide at TES; the resignation of Jeremy Jones, P.E. teacher at Charles Henderson Middle School (CHMS); the resignation of Will Garner, P.E. teacher for CHMS; the transfer of Doug Bransen from math teacher at CHMS to math teacher at Charles Henderson High School (CHHS); the hire of Diana Barrett to teach math at CHMS; the hire of Quanishia Carter to teach math at CHMS; the hire of Stephen McKinnon to teach math at CHMS; the resignation of Sonya Wright, guidance counselor at CHHS; the resignation of Cody Keene, special education teacher at CHHS; the resignation of Raven Jackson, math teacher at CHHS; the declination of Nneka Anelu, math teacher at CHHS; the hire of Kevin Temple to teach history at CHHS; the hire of Taylor Polk to teach special education at CHHS; the hire of Julia Lewis to teach math at CHHS; and the hire of Adriane Hill as secretary at CHHS.
